Cornell University Library Witchcraft Collection

The Cornell University Library Witchcraft Collection is available at URL http://historical.library.cornell.edu/witchcraft/ .
 
They write on their collections:
Quote:
It documents the earliest and the latest manifestations of the belief in witchcraft as well as its geographical boundaries, and elaborates this history with works on canon law, the Inquisition, torture, demonology, trial testimony, and narratives. Most importantly, the collection focuses on witchcraft not as folklore or anthropology, but as theology and as religious heresy.

 
inter alia they have:
  • Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim: De incertitudine et vanitate omnium scientiarum et artium, Lugduni Batavorum 1643  
  • Jean Bodin: De la Demonomanie des Sorciers, Paris 1587
  • John Dee: Quote:

His private Conferences with Rodolphe Emperor of Germany, Stephen K. of Poland, and divers other Princes about it. The Particulars of his Cause, as it was agitated in the Emperors Court; by the Popes intervention: his banishment, and restoration in part.
